than ten minutes so i'm not quite sure. i'll give you the big thing. this evening by a vote of 218-210 the house of representatives approve a republican plan and that would raise the debt limit by $900 billion initially then another $1.6 trillion sometime in early 2011, but it is all linked to a balanced budget amendment which, of course, the senate says is doa on arrival. and, in fact, they voted and basically said it's doa and on arrival. in the senate a democrat plan will be voted on tomorrow and the republicans in a sense are saying they will vote tomorrow to say it's dead before it even gets here. you can see these adults are really getting along with each other. but the reality of the situation is we are no closer to a deal. in fact, arguably, we're farther from a deal. for the last six days, the stock market has gone down 500, 600 points, and monday if there's not a deal, we might see the market go into some sort of a panic. that's a real possibility because the bad news would flow from that would just be incredible. now, the big problem is that if this happens, the credit o
